My soul, with sacred joy survey. T. Kelly. [Missions.] First published in his Collection of Psalms & Hymns, &c, Dublin, 1802, No. 264 [there are two hymns in the collection with this number], in 7 stanzas of 4 lines, and based on Isa. xliii. 5, 6. It was repeated in the first edition of his Hymns, &c, 1804, and again in all later editions (ed. 1853, No. 575). In addi¬tion to appearing in a few collections under its opening line, two centos therefrom are in common use, both beginning: "Arise, arise; with joy survey." These are: (1) In Hatfield's Church Hymn Book, N. Y., 1872, No. 1219, composed of stanzas i., in., ii., vi. and vii. in the order named; (2) In the Baptist Praise Book, N. Y., 1871, where stanzas i., iv. form No. 1204.
